    Re: Polarized Sunglasses

    Belated thanks for this, Jason. I'd add a third advantage to glass vs. plastic lenses - plastic lenses always seem to attract more dust, which I'm guessing is due to plastic lenses 'holding' (if...

    Re: Lake Powell

    Thanks for all the responses; didn't realize what a fishing resource Lake Powell was.

    I hadn't really thought much about a time of the year to rent a houseboat there. Being in Houston, we like...

    Lake Powell

    My wife's interested in renting a houseboat for a few days on Lake Powell. I might be interested if fly-fishing was feasible from it. Does anyone have any experience with fly-fishing Lake Powell,...

    Re: New Mexico (southern) - Ruidoso area

    Fireroad, thanks for the response. I'd much prefer Taos and along the NM/CO border - lots of good trout streams there, and prettier than San Juan - but my wife's only got four vacation days left and...

    Glad to Be Back!

    Well, thanks to Ard for 'pinging' me to see how/where i was, but while I fell off the fly-fishing interest because of heavy work requirement, I'm back - and eager to be so. I see that Frank Whiton...

    Because if you don't know the exact amount of backing (remember, different types vary in diameter) to go with a specific fly line and reel spool, then to avoid hit-or-miss cutting you pretty much...

    The TensionMate website itself states that it is to be used for "spinner, side cast and bait cast" reels. No mention of fly fishing reels, which of course is the purpose of this Forum. Have you...

    Re: Waders and boots

    If we're talking about avoiding a dip in the river, a good wading staff should be at least as high on the list as the various non-slip boots we're talking about.

    Re: Help with rotary vise decision.

    Okay, I've got a Peak too and I love it; however, it is a bunch more bucks than a Danvise, so we're really talking apples and oranges here.

    I'm probably the third 'candidate' for multiple spools per reel, because I know I've talked about them before. While I typically have a second reel for a given rod size, I will have at least two...

    Re: Whats your vise?

    I had (& loved) a DanVise. It is a terrific value, a full-featured true rotary for under $80, but as I'm currently pretty much restricted to tailwaters, the DanVise gets a bit cramped when tying...

  21. Re: Any casting differences between WF and DT lines?

    Don't know if this is relevant to your situation (never cast a 10-wt.), but the DT would certainly be easier to roll cast. It would probably give you a more delicate presentation as well, but don't...

  24. Re: Any tricks or surefire way to make sure line guides are straight?

    I do, but primarily to make sure that my ferrules haven't loosened while casting (thereby hopefully avoiding ferrule female joint cracking). Easy to check guide alignment at the same time.
